Amine is a 53-year-old, married man and the father of four children. He has been working as a car mechanic for 42 years, and he opened his present garage in September 2003. Amine was only 11 years old when he started working, and he didn't have a normal childhood like other children his age.

Amine works hard to provide his family with a secure and healthy life. For this reason, and to keep pleasing his customers, he has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to buy a new scanner machine necessary for checking in cars. His old one isn't working anymore, and he really needs it in his business.

This will be Amine's second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with good standing and repayment history. He hopes to open another business in the future, where he sells spare car parts and hardware.
